Getty Realty Corp. Serves Notice To Getty Petroleum Marketing Terminating The Master Lease

Getty Realty Corp. (NYSE: GTY) (the “Company”) announced today that as a result of the uncured default by Getty Petroleum Marketing, Inc. (“Marketing”) with respect to its nonpayment of November 2011 rent, the Company served Marketing with a formal notice of termination of the Master Lease (the “Notice”). Pursuant to the Notice, the Company notified Marketing that it was terminating the Master Lease and exercising its right to take possession of the premises underlying the Master Lease effective December 12, 2011. The Company intends to pursue its current actions against Marketing, seek possession of the unitary premises underlying the Master Lease and pursue all other rights and remedies. The Company cannot provide any assurance regarding the ultimate resolution of its proceedings against Marketing.

Following termination of the Master Lease, the Company intends to reposition the portfolio subject of the Master Lease in order to maximize its long-term value. This repositioning may result in long term leases on sub-groups of properties with multiple distributors or suppliers, individual leases with existing or new dealers or the sale of locations.

As a result of the foregoing developments, it is likely that the Company will be required to increase the deferred rent receivable reserve, record additional impairment charges, accrue for environmental liabilities and incur significant costs associated with proceedings against Marketing and a repositioning of the Master Lease portfolio. The Company has not determined the amounts of any such potential adjustments to its financial statements. These developments could materially adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition, revenues, operating expenses, results of operations, liquidity, ability to pay dividends or stock price.

For more information on the risks associated with the Company’s relationship with Marketing, see the disclosure under the caption “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, the Company’s subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and as updated by the Company’s subsequent periodic reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended and the Company’s other filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
